Have you tried unistalling the keyboard from device manager then rebooting, letting the pc reinstall it.

its installed as a "standard 101/102-key or microsoft natural ps/2 keyboard"

You mean the (often) blue key, that changes the way some of the other keys work?

Try taking the battery out - this completeley kills all power to the system.

i have a number pad integrated into my keyboard which is turned on by the function button - it stays on permenantly
